Traffic Cameras: Yes Or No?

Posted in Our Blog on December 21, 2011

One of the goals at Redmann Law is to get the general public actively involved in conversation about the law. The law not only influences how we live, we also influence how the law is shaped.

So I’d like to know what you think about a particularly fiery debate right now: Traffic cameras. We all know somebody who’s been issued a citation by a traffic camera (most of us have probably been ticketed ourselves), and we’ve heard both sides of the debate argue back and forth. Supporters say traffic cameras increase safety and generate revenue for their communities; opponents point to a lack of evidence that traffic cameras make people drive more safely, and that very little money actually stays in the community (with most of the money going back to the camera contractors).

This is a fascinating and important topic. So what do you think?
